The general format of the night would be designed by the guest Curator(s) to include a presentation by one featured live Speaker, viewing of 2-3 TED talk videos supporting the theme, and facilitated discussion. The Curator(s) shall select the speaker and videos and attend at least one rehearsal where the speaker practices their talk. Curator(s) cannot also be the Speaker but may work with the Speaker to design the program/videos, discussions, etc. The live speaker will be videotaped and their talk posted to the international TEDxTalks YouTube channel. Stacy Kontrabecki, curator of the TEDxShelburneFalls conference, will be available for general counsel, ensuring the TED practices and editorial guidelines are followed. No Speakers may be paid, but Curator and supporting staff during the event may receive Super-worker credit hours towards a discount when shopping at the Franklin Community Cooperative stores. Other TED guidelines may be found at www.ted.com/tedx.
Please apply for consideration with your topic, live speaker name and Curator/Host name by April 1.
